Use of access control
The goal of access control is to minimize the risk of unauthorized access to physical and logical systems.
Access control is a fundamental component of security compliance programs that ensures security technology
and access control policies are in place to protect confidential information, such as customer assets.
Most organizations have infrastructure and procedures that limit access to intellectual property.
Access control systems can be quickly implemented, having the right information on hand and the the right equipment in place
complex and can be challenging to manage in dynamic IT environments that involve on-premises systems and cloud services.
After some high-profile breaches, technology vendors have shifted away from single take on systems to unified access management, which offers access controls for on-premises and cloud environments.
Implementing Access Control
Access control is a process that is integrated into an organization's environment. It can involve identity and access management systems. These systems provide access control software, a user database, and management tools for access control policies, auditing and enforcement.
